GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Detectives have arrested a Grants Pass man following complaints that he had been innappropriately contacting underage girls online, according to the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety (GPDPS).
Detectives began investigating 46-year-old Christopher Robert Nettifee over the past several weeks after receiving the complaints.
"The subsequent investigation revealed that Christopher was sending graphic photographs of himself to a juvenile female," GPDPS said in a statement. "Christopher was also requesting nude photographs from the juvenile female in return."
Law enforcement later found and arrested Nettifee, charging him with Attempted Use of Child in Display and Online Sexual Corruption of a Child II.
Following the arrest, authorities are cautioning parents to become familiar with their childrens' online activities with social media and apps — citing information on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website, as well as a recent Newsweek article listing 15 apps that are "dangerous for children."
